Dreams in the Pleasure Garden - Machaut / Orlando Consort

by Orlando Consort

CD

Overview

This is love music from the heart on an intimate scale. Ockheghem and Machaut, 15th-century composers from the courts of Flanders and France, are both deeply satisfying composers. Ockeghem has a meditative, even philosophical tone, whereas Machaut can sometimes seem almost playful in his graceful effects. The Orlando Consort performs the program in a appealingly direct and personal way, appropriately avoiding theatrical effects.The resonance of the Saint Osdag Church in Mandelsloh, Germany, where this recording was made, adds further atmosphere and a meditative aura.
